Saudi Arabia has made it mandatory for Indians to take the Skill Verification Program (SVP) test, according to a report by The Economic Times.

The move is part of the kingdom’s efforts to enhance the quality of its professional workforce and combat the issue of unqualified employees.

The test is mandatory for specific categories of jobs in the initial phase, with the intention to gradually expand it to encompass all other occupations.

Launched in 2021, the Skill Verification Program (SVP) aims to ensure that only qualified professionals are allowed to work in Saudi Arabia.

The Skill Verification Program began its first phase in India in December 2022, according to the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development (MHRSD) and as reported by SPA. The launch initially took place in New Delhi and Mumbai.
